Kosmikud - Viimane etapp (English translation)

Estonian

Viimane etapp

töö ei austan’d tegijat
põrgumasin isandat
tobe juhtum sandistas
käe tal randmest poolitas
 
poissi teadis iga tohter
enda järjekordne ohver
püromaanist patsient
osakonna püsiklient
 
teine kord
kolmas kord
neljas kord
viies kord
 
igavus ju tapab ära
toogem palatisse sära
pommimeistri voodi me
autoks ära tuunime
 
ja kui lõppen’d suur visiit
ralli alata võib siin
juhiks naaberpatsient
käigukangiks poisi könt
 
teine käik
kolmas käik
neljas käik
viies käik
 
pakitud on haiglakohver
voodi serval ootab sohver
tühjaks tõstetud on kapp
jäänud viimane etapp

The Last Stage

Work didn't respect the worker1,
hell machine [didn't respect] its master
Dumb incident turned [him] into a cripple,
halved his arm throught the wrist
 
Every doctor knew the boy,
another victim of himself
a pyromaniacal patient,
the frequenter2 of the department
 
The second time
The third time
The fourth time
The fifth time
 
Boredom really kills
Let's bring some brightness to the ward
We'll pimp the bomb-craftsman's bed into a ride
 
And when the great visitation has ended
A rally can start here
The neighboring patient for a driver,
the boy's stump for a gear stick
 
The second gear3
The third gear
The fourth gear
The fifth gear
 
The hospital-bag has been packed
By the bed a driver waits
The cupboard has been emptied
The last phase/stage is ahead
 
  • 1. the positive "Töö kiidab (praises) tegijat" is a proverb
  • 2. frequent visitor, habitual client
  • 3. also "visit"

The same goes for reusing parts of my translations in your own (parallel) translations. Id est: it is forbidden. (If a translation is IYO slightly wrong, I'd be glad if commented or PMed.)
If you want to translate my translation into a third language or use it as a basis, you are welcome. Especially if you do it on this website. Just be so kind and mention it and me. :) You can also notify me (in addition, it would make me recheck my work and maybe find errors that you wouldn't copy then) but you don't have to.

Most of my translations are works in progress. One never knows when a revelation can strike. One word: recheck.
